Obama Swoons – Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President Issues New Constitutional Declaration Granting Himself Far-Reaching Powers, Eliminating Judiciary…

Freedom is such a pesky consideration….

“As President, I cannot just impose my will on Congress — the Congress of the United States — even though sometimes I wish I could,”  – Barack Obama 11/19/12

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi issued a new constitutional declaration on Thursday in which he assumed sweeping powers that will not be subject to appeal.

Mr. Morsi made his move as he was basking in praise from the White House and other international accolades for his central role negotiating a cease-fire the previous night between Israel and the militant Palestinian group Hamas in the Gaza Strip.

And in a move likely to inflame a standoff with the country’s judiciary, he sacked prosecutor general Abdel Meguid Mahmoud, whom he failed to oust last month, appointing Talaat Ibrahim Abdallah to replace him.

“The president can issue any decision or measure to protect the revolution,” according to the constitutional declaration, read out on television by spokesman Yasser Ali.

“The constitutional declarations, decisions and laws issued by the president are final and not subject to appeal.”

He also said no judicial body can dissolve the Islamist-dominated constituent assembly that is writing a new constitution and which has been criticized by the secular-minded opposition for failing to represent all segments of society.

    A ‘new pharaoh’ rises from Mubarak’s ashes….

    “Mr. Obama told aides he was impressed with the Egyptian leader’s pragmatic confidence,” reported The New York Times. “He sensed an engineer’s precision with surprisingly little ideology.”

    Of course theres an appeal. Assassination and a new preseident issues new decision and law. Thats kind of thier entire history in the region, isnt it? Nothing like concentrating all that power into one position that relies on the good will of others (soldiers) to keep safe and secure.

    He can and he does–by ignoring them, by taking unconstitutional actions that are not challenged, by issuing Executive Orders that are never reviewed, by appointing czars that are never vetted.

    Such a statement coming from him is equivalent to a 400 pounder saying, “I just can’t keep my weight up. I wish I didn’t have to eat so much.”
